Mediated energy transfer in covalently linked porphyrin dimers
Journal article, 1997

Donor-acceptor systems where the rate of radiationless electronic energy transfer is influenced by the electronic structure of the intervening medium are studied. In this paper we report the observation of mediated energy transfer in a series of geometrically well-defined porphyrin dimers. The dimers consist of a free base porphyrin (5,15-diphenyl-alpha,beta-octaalkylporphyrin, H2P) and the corresponding zinc porphyrin (ZnP) as acceptor and donor, respectively, connected by aryl chromophores with varying energies of the lowest excited states.
